Leadership Guide     Change Maker   Author

 

 

 

Over the past fifteen years, Barry has worked with thousands of people, helping them to unlock potential, become authentic leaders and deliver sustainable change.

 

His passions include inspiring and enabling young leaders in their development, building sustainable communities and being a positive force in building a better world through effective collaboration and communication.

 

Barry's work can be grouped around three themes:

 

Leadership guide

Barry is passionate about the impact highly effective leadership can have on teams, organisations, families, communities and society

 

Having observed, experienced and witnessed a plethora of different leadership approaches and styles over a 40 year professional career he has developed a clear idea of the traits consistently  applied by highly effective leaders.

 

He has now committed the remaining years of his professional life to providing the inspiration, guidance and support to enable the development of leaders at every level

 

His thinking is captured in 'Lead Like Mary', his book first published in 2014

 

He has worked with thousands of leaders, in dozens of organisations, challenging, guiding and enabling the development of authentic leadership

 

He runs Evolving Leaders,  a programme for 50 young leaders, designed to develop a new generation of authentic leaders

 

He runs programmes teaching the leadership traits and principles explored in Lead Like Mary.

 

Barry also researches, writes, shares and blogs extensively on leadership.

 

 

Change maker

Barry fundamentally believes that it is only through delivering successful and sustainable change that we can make transformational progress and build a better tomorrow

 

That principle applies whether it's to an individual, team, organisation, community, society or ultimately the world.

 

Barry makes that change happen either by leading projects himself or supporting others to achieve that transformation.

 

He led a project in his local community which delivered £500k of funding to address rural isolation and physical and psychological well being.

 

He chairs the Osprey Leadership Foundation, a charity established by entrepreneurial  conservationist Tim Makrill, which transforms the lives of young people in Africa and the U.K.

 

As a mentor, coach and facilitator Barry has supported countless leaders to deliver transformational change to individuals, teams and organisations.

 

 

Author

As well as publishing Lead Like Mary, Barry writes fiction. His first novel, The Lobster Pot Cafe, is scheduled to be published in 2017.
